15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cascades of Agua Azul

The Cascades of Agua Azul in the blue water biosphere of southern Chiapas , just 3 miles from the Archaeological site of Palenque. The crystalline blue waters are colored by the large amount of limestone deposits of the rocky river bed. A surreal enironment in the heart of the dense green rain forest.
